It took a long time for Nashville to confirm the signing of former Forge striker Woobens Pacius, but his inclusion in EAFC 24 came about much more quickly.

The two-time CPL champion’s move to Major League Soccer heights now means he gets the videogame treatment, with his likeness included in the annual football game that nets its producers well over a billion dollars each year.

The digital Woobens was added to Nashville’s in-game roster in the latest squad update, revealing that the Canadian Premier League striker has landed a 57 overall rating.

That’s one less than the first-ever CPL-to-MLS Export Joel Waterman was given four years ago, and one more than Cavalary striker William Akio got during his stint with Ross County. As CPL exports have stuck it out in MLS, however, those ratings have historically risen over time.

The EAFC developers certainly believe Pacius has room to grow, giving him a career mode potential of 66. His base player boasts a high attacking work rate, with his best attributes coming in the physical categories: a 69 strength, 67 jumping, and 64 reaction speed are his highest in-game attributes, though he does boast a 66 for attacking position awareness and a solid 60 for finishing.

Pacius is the second former Canadian Premier League winner to land in Nashville, with defender Lukas MacNaughton – who is rated 62 overall – also with the team, while Canadian international Jacob Shaffelburg rocks a mean in-game mullet with Nashville too.

Pacius’s rating of 57 may seem one of the harsher introductory ratings given that he massed an incredible 32 goals in 93 appearances while with Forge. The CF Montreal academy product won two titles in his three seasons as a Hamiltonian, while also featuring in the Canadian Championship Final against Toronto FC.

Nashville has signed him to a two-year contract with club options for 2026 and 2027, so if Woobens strikes a chord in the Music City fans will hope to see his EAFC stock keep rising for years to come.

While EAFC is produced in Vancouver, Canada’s own domestic league has yet to grace the series – and that’s something we prodded them about even before the league had kicked its first ball. Fans hoping to digitally assert Forge’s dominance can always take the hotseat in Football Manager, however.
